It's Late

I've been working in wax all since 2 and I had some work I wanted to finish so I pushed a bit. And now I have an ache between my shoulders.

But the art nouveau lily pendant is progressing really well.   The dark astronomicals  are looking finished and I'm figuring out some rings.

I'm thinking abut gold pendants in very open designs that depends a lot on perfect balance.  i may do one with an orange sapphire and one with a mauve pearl. 

And the type came today!  A friend warned me to cover the parts I handle with tape since it's lead.  Sounds like really good advice.

Tomorrow I'll shift to some metal work.
